Unlock leadership potential with neuroscience
Leadership can be learned: new evidence from neuroscience clearly points to ways that leaders can significantly improve how they engage with and motivate others, allowing them and their organizations to continue discovering their potential. This book provides leaders and managers with a guide to practical, effective actions, based on neuroscience, explained in an accessible way.
It focuses on the competencies and capabilities that leaders and managers need to think creatively, make good decisions, improve their performance and resilience, deal with complexity, incentivize, and innovate, rather than focusing on brain regions or even functional pathways within the brain. This book comes from three authors who combine knowledge and experience in applied neuroscience, psychiatry, organizational psychology, learning and leadership coaching at a world class level.
In absolute contrast with the typically lightweight fare found in books on leadership, Neuroscience for Leadership really educates, informs and gives actionable advice. It’s not tediously academic nor riddled with airport bookstore clichés. Food for the mind. Highly recommended.
